Biotechnologie Pflanzenbiotechnologie


In advance of industrial applications of in vitro plant cell or tissue cultures e. g., as bioactive ingredients for pharmaceuticals, an intense characterization concerning growth and productivity has to be performed. Innovative respiration measurement techniques in shake flask scale were applied to investigate and compare heterotrophic, photomixotrophic and hairy root cultures of sunflower. Furthermore, the qualification of a monitoring system for screening of plant in vitro cultures is discussed.
